Farsightedness is an eye condition that makes you see far objects veryclearly while having trouble seeing close objects as they seem blurry.
Farsightedness eyes don’t bend light correctly, they under-focus the light and form an incomplete image on the retina, which may happen if the eyeball is too short, the cornea is too flat or the lens is getting older. Hyperopia is usually inherited; if your parents have it, you are more likely to get it as well.
Although some of farsighted people may not feel any problem, if the eye muscles are working harder to see better, they may develop some symptoms such as:
● Blurry and hazy vision, especially when looking at close objects.
● Dull pain in the eye.
● Difficulty in reading.
Hyperopia does not go away with time, the ophthalmologist most probably will suggest solutions to improve vision quality such as: eyeglasses, eye contacts or surgery. Lenses in eyeglasses are a simple solution to correct farsightedness, as they change the way the light is focused on the retina. Contact lenses work almost the same way the eyeglasses do, yet are small and sit light directly on the surface of the eyeball. Both eyeglasses and contact lenses are totally safe and very convenient.
Farsightedness may also be treated by refractive surgery using laser to change the shape of cornea to adjust eyes’ ability to focus and enhance farsightedness. Regular checkups help to prevent Hyperopia from getting worse and are really important to adjust the lenses measurements over time
